Zeiss Terra ED 10×42 Binoculars Review
Elk hunting can be tricky when it comes to optics; you want clarity and durability but keeping weight in mind. If you’re like me, you want all of that without having to burn an entire paycheck (or two) on optics. Spotting scopes are nice but hunting elk means being as mobile and as lightweight as possible most of the time. At 5.6 inches in length and weighing only 25.6 ounces the Terra 10×42’s are about as compact and lightweight as you can get. The lens quality wasn’t overlooked either. Glassing during the low light early morning or evening hours is never a problem with 88% light transmission. The field of view at 1,000 yards is 330 feet so you’re sure to catch anything moving across ridges. If you need some extra stabilization the 42 mm models are also tripod compatible.
